Lipstick in Catholic School (You've got to love this principal)



According to a news report, a certain private Catholic school was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom.

That was fine provided it was of a natural or neutral skin tone, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.



Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.



Finally the principal, Sister Paschal, decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses). To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, Sister Paschal asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.



He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.



There are teachers.... and then there are educators!!!

Thanks for sharing. I personally love the lesson taught.

However, as a public school educator I can see parents running to the Board of Education complaining and that little "lesson" coming back to bite us.

Parents would not see the real lesson, their children should not be misusing the bathroom and causing extra work for the building service worker.
